"Live for coming up right here from studio. And you're a little different than that was. That's a great room, by the way. That's a big loud raucous music room right there at the Brown house, but this is going to be an intimate presentation of huge rockiness 'cause you got Rosie in the rivers, and if you ever get an opportunity them, they are so fun. It's sexy. There is sexy bay. Fun to listen just fish, really good, really, really good performers cleaner sickly. Yep. All right. Mr Richard Roeper was yesterday telling us about a couple of films wanna just kinda go back some stars. Yeah. We talked about Susan, which is Zachary Levi in the live version of the story of the fourteen year old kid, who becomes a superhero. Basically big meet superman, and we love that three and a half stars. And it gets a lot of fun. You know, PG PG thirteen actually so it's a little dark places. But that's also got that cool. Double layer thing. So mom and dad or whoever is taking the kids will enjoy it. No species thirteen nothing. Ten year old eight year old this point in time. No, no, no, no, nothing. No innuendo or any of that. So we love Shas AM, and then pet cemetery which is the second major film adaptation of the great Stephen King novel, which I believe might just not be suited for at of tation because the larger themes in the book it lost did not like it at all to stores to stars for that. And I'll say this to pet cemetery obviously is already, but it is really grisly grotesque and disturbing. For the kids at all. I don't think for most adults, even but you know, I know some people love I love horror myself, but I like horror that's thoughtful and interesting provocative, and yeah can still be bloody. You know, we look Halloween films. Like that are a lot of fun. I found this one especially because it involves children and pets to be explained and sadistic, quite frankly can't have that. So. A great morning team. Did not last that long sadistic. I believe they team. Okay. I've got a ton of other movies come on this movie. They're always want to talk about movies. They're advertising on television. So this is the best of enemies. Yeah. And Sam Rockwell wins an Oscar every hour on true, whether you like it or not, and Dr Hanson, she has the cast pillow cast member of empire with Jesse Malek. Yeah. But she's an honorary Chicago by now after five years and more coming with empire them, we love tragedy. Let me take the background story really fast. Best of enemies, because it's one of those words based on a true story that makes you want to read more about the two straight nineteen seventy-one Durham, North Carolina. There was a case in front of the court about desegregation of schools because guess what? After nineteen fifty four. A lot of local municipalities were like that's good for you. But we'll we'll keep things as they are. So this was all about whether or not after school afire the black school with the kids be allowed to attend the white school. So there would be integration. They actually put together. A panel of local residents and on purpose. The chairs of the panel were tragic character and at water who is a longtime civil rights activists African American single mother and Sam Rockwell character who was the head clinical of the Ku Klux Klan had and out out with it. They were not they were not secretive and seventy one North Carolina that was he was a pillar of the community of that community. So Sam Rockwell plays the racist KKK guy tragedy heads and plays the longtime so rights activists. They have to get together and hash this thing out. All based on a true story, an amazing story because in the thirty years after that, these two became very good friends, and actually they'll really reach some understandings and with tore the country talking about, hey, if a African American single mother who got pregnant when she was thirteen and raised all kinds of kids on our own always fighting for the truth Justice and the American way and the head of the KKK could become friends there's hope for this country. That's a great story the movie not so much. I gave it to a half stars. I'm close on it because it is such a great story. But they do it in such a heavy handed way, you know, with the evil against the good. And the other thing I have the problem. I have is the same criticism people had of green book, which is the white guy. Teaching the black guy all about a life. And in the last half of the movie, let's half hour of the movie, the Sam Rockwell character, the KKK guy kind of becomes the hero. When it should be more about at water, the Civil Rights Act. So I thought they they went down the wrong package should be racist. How does this work? Now, she she just sort of everyone sort of marveling his, you know transformation. But it's like he transformed his feelings and his personnel is also at her because of Horace exactly two and a half stars for best of enemies this one Oscar at all even though. I would think so the same record just played this guy in three billboards two years ago, the corrupt racist guy who then has transformation won the Oscar for that. He's great at playing that. But if I were saying Rockwell who could do anything, I would say to my agent, no more southern racist. Thority figures who have a change of heart. All right now about that. So that's not the one to run. But it is kind of film. I think you know, when it comes out on video the next three or three months probably is an enjoyable at work. That's ninety nine on the rent or just wait for Netflix. I'd say it's worth a three ninety nine and they're not the twelve dollars in the babysitter. And all the stuff you have to go on a Friday or Saturday or something. All right. No. And also this weekend. It is. Now escaping me. Well, let's talk real time to talk on a mentioned first of all the public and the full interview that we did with mealy. Visit Ryan I know as vailable right now up and running on the website. So people can Chevy radioplus. Exactly. So you can find out a lot more about that movie. I'll say briefly it's worth checking out three stars. It's a it's a it's a cool social wear story. Sentencing public library has to do with the homeless uprising, but they're people get a lot more information already there and then Jin radio dot com. I'm blowing go there and you can find it's right there. That's all part of the pocket. They were fantastic conversation. The five of us. We been around for five hours time, then they wanna mention very quickly. This is available on CBS streaming which again, just look it up. But I wanna how do I get that? You just go to your Google and type in your CBS eighteen and I think you can do it on your TV. It's the new version of the twilight zone almost positive the first and second episodes are available for free. CBS to right now. It's a streaming product. Yes. And this is Jordan Peele who is as hot as anybody in Hollywood get out and then us, and I love the idea that he's doing a reboot of the classic television series of the twilight zone, not the same episodes. But a lot of modern episodes that are similar to those great episodes, and he's also just being the producer. He's the host. So, you know, if people recall, you get the little setup, and then right there in the courtroom, you'd pan and there'd be rod sterling, nobody this cassia, but we can't and now Jordan Peele in a suit, you know, consider if you will Rokon and.
Through the eyes of Annie Leibovitz
"From the Mon broadcast center at KP. See see this is the frame, I'm John horn on today's show what the cancellation of Pearvel shows on Netflix might mean for the future of the TV business then from antiwar demonstrations to Arnold Schwarzenegger, riding horseback. Any Vits has photographed at all we walked through a new exhibit of her early work was not a good photojournaling. So I was going to have to tell more my story from my point of view and left journalism behind eventually turned to portraiture because it was a way of having real licensed to do what you wanted in a photograph and the country swing band asleep at the wheel is still rolling along fifty years after its founding all that coming up on the frame. With so many new players jumping into the streaming game including Disney, apple and Warner media. Twenty nineteen is likely to bring some big changes to the TV business. We called up Daniel Feinberg a TV critic for the Hollywood reporter to talk about what the future could look like to TV viewers. He's just finished covering two weeks of presentations from broadcast networks cable channels and streaming services at the television critics association meetings. We started with the news from earlier this week that net flicks. His canceling Jessica Jones and the punisher to marvel shows which not coincidentally are also Disney properties. There is no question that we are on the brink of some sort of key transition point. And regardless of what you choose to call it, whether you want to call it these streaming wars or the road to new cable, or whatever you wanted describe it as there are things that are changing that are going to dramatically reshape what the media landscape look. In five years in the same way that five years ago, it looked completely different. And I think that there's no question that the cancellation of the marvel shows on Netflix is a. Assign a gesture in a certain direction because these were very high profile shows for Netflix when they premiered and they were part of a big programming strategy. And now, suddenly all of the marvel properties are really part of aid Disney, plus or a Disney marvel streaming strategy, and so they don't fit with Netflix anymore. And I think that you're gonna see something with the tug of war over something like friends, I think that we are only at the beginning of what is going to be probably the biggest story in where television is going in the next year and a half probably. And that is basically that the people who create those shows used to see companies like Netflix as a source of ancillary revenue and now they see streaming services as direct competitors. So they're trying to pull their content back at their launching their own streaming services. Is that the bigger picture here? I think that is definitely the bigger picture. And all of the things that the Netflix and Hulu have kind of taken for granted as the foundation of their. Business model, you know, the for whatever we want to say about the apparently twelve billion dollars that Netflix last year poured into original programming acquired content is still a major portion of what people actually stream on Netflix. Whether it's whether it's friends, whether it's the office, whether it's all of the CW shows, and that's great for Netflix because it allows net flicks to have that kind of foundation, but it, but it's also a business that the people who actually own those programs want to be in. And so is Netflix original programming is it enough if suddenly the studio start taking away all of their prestige programs. Yeah. I don't know. Let's talk about a couple of new programs one that's on Netflix. It's called Russian doll and one on Hulu called Penn. Fifteen. These are shows that seem to be getting a lot of attention. Are they worth checking out? And how are they doing so far? I think they're absolutely were checking out, and I think we had absolutely no idea how either one of them is doing. Let's look says not put out a press release boasting that forty million people in some form or another have watched Russian doll. So I don't know all I know is that it's a really good show. It's a really smart show. It's a show that plays around with with format and with tone, and with style in very impressive ways. So Russian dolls. Definitely we're checking out, and I think Penn fifteen on Hulu is is a lot of fun to gimmick is the two co creators are basically playing junior high versions of themselves. Devil dis her last night at camp. How was even possible? I don't know what happened in the middle of her sleep. That's so unfair that happens to me surrounded by actual preteen and teen actors, and it's it's a really good show about the awkwardness of being a teenager. That's maybe aimed at older viewers who survived those years. I wanna talk about a couple of other shows that might be worth talking about FOX has a series called proven innocent pop has a series called flack and DC universe has a series called doom patrol or any of those shows are other things that you've seen jumping out in terms of midseason or early start shows that are coming out either. Now, or very soon one of the shows that if you've watched any BC in the past couple of weeks, and you're going to see as we move towards the Oscars this weekend that is getting a lot of buzz for ABC as whiskey cavalier whiskey cavalier. One of our best agents. I intelligence proven to be a huge asset to the bureau. You and your fiance recently parted ways. Yes, we did mutual most commercial, but I'm totally fine with it. We have the footage. How? It's a show that I would say succeeds at its goals, and that's something that I wouldn't necessarily say about say proven innocent, which is a very very run of the mill entirely forgettable legal procedural at the very least whiskey cavalier is pretty people Scott fully and learn Cohen or the stars are attractive and fun. And they're having a good time. It was shot in Europe. And it makes actual good use of European locations. It's got all of the depth of a very very shallow puddle. But on the other hand, it's fun. And it's the same with with DC universe is doomed patrol, which is kind of quirky kind of odd and of vast improvement over DC universe's, I live action show which was titans, which was all gloomy and glum and unpleasant. So there's something to be said for improvement one of the other things that happens at the as is that critics get sneak peeks, maybe it's some footage. Maybe it's a pilot of a show. That's not going to be on for a couple of months. Is there anything that you and your colleagues? Saw that might not be coming out immediately. But that you're really interested in seeing what more there is the series. Well, I definitely can't review. The one episode I've seen of FX Fosse Verdon, but I can tell you that that show which starts Sam Rockwell, and Michelle Williams is definitely going to be worth one that I'm looking forward to checking out. It's the story of Bob Fosse, Gwen Verdon. And so there's a lot of fifty sixty seventies cinematic, and Broadway and musical references and dancing and choreography. And I'm not gonna say anything more than I'm looking forward to seeing more episodes. Daniel Feinberg is a TV critic for the Hollywood reporter. He is also the president of the television critics association Daniel, thanks for your time and your insight. Thank you for having me. Coming up on the frame, any leave of its walks through an exhibit of her early work.
"sam rockwell" Discussed on The Big Picture
"So this feels like in this race in the Globes race, it feels like Mahershala Richard E grant and Sam Rockwell or sort of the contenders. Yes, I chose Mahershala who did you choose. Here's what I wrote down Marsha Ali in parentheses. But maybe I will change this to Sam Rockwell, which was me lack late last night trying to I think, you're right. I think it will be Marcia we both agreed again the Globes kinda do though what sitting right in front of them are Herschel has been the favourite. I think there will be some misplaced guilt about this movie. And how this character was handled and wanting to put a vote of confidence in the actor. And he's he is just so charismatic even given the many problems that have come to light in this particular character as well as. Movie in general, this Sam Rockwell performance is just so a best supporting actor candy performance in a way that I could see it happening again. Even if he won last year, they really like flashy recognizable that person's working. And that is I mean, he's hilarious. I I, you know, it's very it's very close to what they like. To reward is famous guy imitating famous guy in a kind of a rollicking role. That is essential to the movie, but doesn't take up too much space and Rockwell. I think is fun. And they know that he's gonna he would give a fun speech. You know, mersal like talking about green book on stage. I think it would be quite complicated. It'd be interesting to hear how he would accept an award in the face of some of the criticism of the movie, he's obviously been very thoughtful about that in his talking about in the last couple of months, so we'll see what happens. I think that this category is sort of the the inverse this reporter. Opposite of supporting actress, which is like it's five pretty good performances from five people you like, but they just don't feel all that powerful. Whereas the five performances in best actress and supporting role or like elemental to the movie, and they're really really strong, and they drive the movie you're you're making like the yes, of course, I have you. Face me right now. Sorry. Yes. I mean, that's that's how men's and women's roles work in Hollywood. Anyway. Thank you. Shall we? Go to the next category. Yes, let's switch it up. Speaking of we'll let the men go. First this time great here is best actor in a motion picture musical or comedy. The nominees are Christian Bill for vice Lin Manuel. Miranda for Mary Poppins returns, Vigo Mortenson for green book Raba Redford for the old man and the gun and John rally for standard Ali another weird category. I don't know. I lament woman is not supporting actor. I don't either shouldn't he be supporting actor. I think so. But I suppose they can choose whatever category to run in. And I assume the thinking was since the supporting actors are all in one category. You have less of a shot at nomination. But when it's broken out to drama and musical comedy. He has more shot at nomination and low here. He is good point. It's interesting that he's not really in the conversation that all for best actor for the Oscars. I haven't I haven't seen his name on any any ballots. Yeah. I would agree though. That makes sense. Yeah. I. He's very likable. Yeah. Yeah. Again, it's weird.

Support for NPR comes from Annapurna pictures with vice starring Christian bale, Amy Adams, Steve corral Sam Rockwell in Tyler Perry. A behind the scenes look at American power based on a true story in theaters everywhere. Christmas day. From NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Elsa Chang. And Mary Louise Kelley majority leader Mitch McConnell says he is distressed Nebraska Republican Vince asked calls it a sad day for America. And Chris Murphy, Connecticut Democrat describes it as a national security crisis. All senators all talking about the resignation of secretary of defense, Jim Mattis. I am joined now by another Senator Tim Kaine democrat of Virginia Cain sits on the Armed Services Committee, which will have to confirm whoever is nominated to succeed. Mattis Senator Kaine welcome. Could it be on the show? Thanks so much. I gather you're not happy about secretary Mattis impending departure either. No, look, I've been in public life for twenty five years. I'm an armed services member from a state. That's connected to the military. I have a son in the Marine Corps secretary Mattis has one of the best public servants. I've worked with in my career and his resignation, and especially the asserted reasons for the resignation should 'cause every American to be really really worried. Although was this inevitable Madison self in the resignation letter that I soon you're referring to there. He said the president deserves a Defense Secretary who shares his vision of the world, I think that's very diplomatically put. But if you look at the letter, basically, what secretary Mattis says is this that the two pillars of American security that are constant. And this is a guy who spent more than four decades providing security is a marine is one building strong alliances among democracies and second standing up. To thorough -tarian adversaries, and he basically said Mr President on these two values you and I disagree, and we've certainly seen in a president who undercuts allies at many opportunities using national security waivers to punish Canada and Europe, for example, and then cosies up to a thorough Teheran's such as Russia and and Kim Jong Hoon in North Korea. And that reason asserted by secretary Mattis is very very troubling. Have you talked to him if you talk to dramatically? I have not talked to him since the announcement. The announcement set off a firestorm now leave news, but ambassadors of European and other allies reaching out to Senator saying sort of what's going on announcements this week about Syrian Afghanistan, obviously, causing huge concerns among allies who were side by side with us. In those theaters. I mentioned it's your committee armed services that will have to vote on whoever is named to succeed him. Who would you like to see? You know, it's too early to say that there's a person that I'd like to see, but I want somebody who will be willing to stand up and speak truth to power one of the challenges. And this administration is those who do general McMaster, the national security advisor and secretary Mattis, they get pushed aside, but we need people who are experienced who will look the president in the eye and and speak truth. And if the president can handle it he can't handle it. But I don't want an enabler. There's been too many neighbors around this president and the first two years like bobbleheads saying yes to everything, and that's not what this country needs right now changing gears. We're speaking to you from Capitol Hill. Are you all making any progress on a voiding a government shutdown at stroke of midnight? Well, we had a bipartisan deal just two days ago passed the Senate unanimously with the blessing of the White House, but the president yesterday decided to do a one eighty and say he now if you can't get five billion hill shutdown government and punish eight hundred thousand plus federal employees. Who would not get as long as there's a shutdown? Yeah. I heard you on Sarah calling him the Grinch about to steal Christmas, which I will give you credit. It's a good line. But subsidies. Senator or else? Well, thousands of people who are going to have to work without being paid over the holidays. You're you're absolutely right. And that was what we did when we gave them a bipartisan deal less than forty eight hours ago that he agreed to I know. But here we are society afternoon. So what happens? Well, what's going on? Right now is the vice president, Jared, Kushner, and Mick Mulvaney. The new chief of staff were up talking to Senator Schumer, and we're seeing reports out of that meeting that there may be an announcement soon about a path forward possibly a deal. I understand those administration officials went over to talk to speaker Ryan. So this is very much kind of a work in progress right now, no reason to shut the government down. Absolutely. None just a few seconds left. But, but we're also hearing from Shimer's office, and they're saying that this deal would involve funding for border security, but not the wall would you vote for that? I voted for it many many times comprehensive immigration reform and twenty thirteen head border security money. We offered the president deal in February with border security money. He turned it down border security is something that we all support. All right. Thank you so much Senator. Alright thanks much Virginia.

Whereas maybe the the Clint Eastwood western doesn't have that same sort of zeitgeist feeling to it. But I don't know. I mean, it's wh-. I think we are reduced theorizing AAC. We're not even allowed to talk about the movie and be who the hell knows what goes through the heads of these lovely people. Can I s something that hopefully, you won't bring them by saying it, but I was surprised by Sam Rockwell being supporting nominee not only because that kind of goes crowded is from both comedy and drama. But I. I had gotten the sense that Steve Carell had maybe the bigger part and was more of the takeaway from vice it can anyone China any late on that Carell has the bigger part. But I think Rockwell is playing someone who people are much more familiar with you know, he's as George W Bush. Yeah. Yeah. People certainly new Don Rumsfeld during the Bush years, but like the Bush years were a while ago now, and I think people have forgotten some of the less famous players in the game. Let's say so. Yeah, that that would be my guess, they probably just had a really awesome party. You know, and like Sam Rockwell was probably just being awesome the whole time. And I don't know. I mean, he's good. He's he I think he I think we can say he is good in this everyone, obviously who has seen the trailer there. There's a fair amount of Sam Rockwell in the trailer. And yet to Richard's point. I think it's much it also feels to me a little bit again not to break embargoes. But like, I think Carell is doing less of an impersonation. Than than everyone else's or that, then certainly Christian bale and Sam Rockwell are like Sam Rockwell Christian bale are are like acting like talking like doing the mannerisms of their characters. Whereas I think some of the other folks either we wouldn't know if they were because we're not as familiar or they just decided to take a different route with the performance. It is really weird to have watched George H W Bush funeral yesterday and watched George W Bush gave a eulogy, and then all of a sudden be talking about Dick Cheney and the Bush era again.
